  1. The suppressed revolver is a modified S & W .38 cal provided in 'tunnel rat kits', it was experimental and didn't work well, barely used in this setup. But it helps to show the use of revolvers and suppressors in one scene/ shot

  2. My friend, Galand Richardson, was a tunnel rat in the Korean war. He was a small, short guy, but he had HUMUNGOUS BALLS AND HEART. I had the honor of meeting him when I was a young Correctional Officer. I had Military Police experience…GALAND AND I BECAME FAST FRIENDS. HE TOOK ME UNDER HIS WING AND FED ME, SHOWING GENEROSITY. ONLY LATER DID I COME TO UNDERSTAND HIS FAITH IN GOD. HE TOLD ME OF HIS TIME IN THE TUNNELS. HE SAID ONE TIME HE HAD TO BLOW UP A TUNNEL TO KEEP THE ENEMY FROM CARCHING HIM DOWN THERE. HE HAD A ROPE TIED TO HIS LEG. HIS BUDDIES HAD TO PULL HIM OUT…HE BARELY MADE IT…ALMOST SUFFOCATING, DUG HIMSELF OUT Backwards, he said it was the last time he went into a tunnel. Well…he was the kindest, most generous man. He taught me how to be a good Correctional Officer. He is in heaven now. He worked at Mcneal Island, and the Monroe Correctional Complex…God bless him and his loved ones. I THOUGHT YOU WOULD LIKE TO HEAR ABOUT A TUNNEL RAT WHO WAS A PATRIOT, A SOLDIER, AN OFFICER, AND
    ..A GODLY MAN. GALAND…REST IN PEACE. YOU ARE MY HERO.

  3. 0:02 I hate to double comment, just pointing out that silencers don't work on revolvers (except the Nagant) because gasses escaping at the cylinder gap will still make a loud gunshot sound. On the Nagant revolver, the cylinder slides forward and seals the gap. Silencers were made for the Nagant, and used in WW2 by the Red Army on very few occasions. Those aren't Nagants lol

  4. If you want to see a movie about this, not a documentary, search "Tunnel Rats" on YouTube. It came out in 2019, it's very grim and brutal. It will give you an idea of what it was like though!

  5. I am from Vietnamese, this is my country. my national solder maybe not best in the world like the US, but never the best solder in the world can win VietNam solder. in the past, my country can win china feudatory next to the Mongolia empire, France, Japan, Korea, China, American, Canada, Australia, American allies. I hate war, I hate people made the US-Vietnam war.
